MEDEF Will Have a New Boss

Pierre Gattaz, the CEO of a manufacturer of electronic connectors, will replace Laurence Parisot as the head of the employers' association MEDEF. He is the son of Yves Gattaz, who headed the CNPF (MEDEF's predecessor) in the 80s.

The election of Yvon Gattaz's son sounds as a comeback to a confrontation strategy between employers and the government. As happened with Mr Gattaz Sr then with Baron Seillière.

I fear Mr Gattaz Jr will become very soon the favorite target of cartoonists and les Guignols. His agenda looks like as narrow as was Mr Sellière's. I hope to be wrong.
